Online Typography Exhibition
More than 20 Hungarian artists, graphic designers, and typographers show how they imagine an idealistic world in an online exhibition called Utopolis, organized by Balka as the official program of Design Week Budapest 2021.
Utopolis is a place, to where you can’t plan the way, you can only arrive here, no roads or coordinates are there to lead. In this alternative reality, all challenges have been solved, the self-drawn walls have collapsed, and the constraints and obligations that have become redundant have ceased to exist.
The project holds a mirror to our slippery world in an online typographic exhibition, with the help of designers from the creative sphere. The aim of the project is to write an idealistic scenario that can serve as an alternative to action and encourage the formation and collaboration of communities for the pursuit of collective good. The exhibition shows what it would be like to demolish current ideas and how it would be if we provided enough space, time, and opportunity for everyone instead.
Among the 20 exhibitors, there are some who already gained recognition in their profession, but the list also includes designers and students at the beginning of their career. The designers, invited by the organizers, presented their new works created specifically for the exhibition. The artworks can be browsed at Balka’s website, the artists’ contact information is made available by clicking on their artworks.
